Menu Plan for the Week: 3/25 – 3/31

Steak Salad

How last week’s menu went:

Last week went very smoothly. Gotta love that.

Favorite meal from last week:

I’m going to say that our favorite meal was the Steak Salad, although I can’t take any credit for the steak part because our marvelous friends sent us home with it after a dinner party. But I did make the salad. And I did reheat the steak and slice it. I even made the dressing. So I say it counts. I added some lightly sauteed yellow peppers and loved that addition, too.

I could pick several dishes for second place, but I do want to say that the Make-Ahead Unstuffed Shells were really super easy and yummy and we all loved them.

Make-Ahead Unstuffed Shells

This Week’s Menu Plan

Sunday

  • Omelet Bar – cheese, a little bit of leftover ham, spinach, sauteed onions, mushrooms
  • steamed broccoli
  • homemade vanilla yogurt with blueberries (I use low fat milk and add 1 c. of nonfat powdered milk to thicken)

Monday

  • Quick spaghetti and meat sauce: 1 box of spaghetti + 1 pound of cooked ground beef (from my freezer) + 2 jars of spaghetti sauce = happy tummies in a hurry
  • green beans

Tuesday  

Wednesday

Thursday 

Friday

  • Homemade Pizza with a quick and easy crust (I use part whole wheat flour and knead the dough after mixing)
  • raw veggies

Saturday

    Elizabeth…your food always looks so professionally presented! that salad up top made me wanna lick my screen. yum!

      Oh you are so so sweet! I love hearing that, because I don’t really know what I’m doing and I’m just using an old point-and-shoot digital camera. I find that good natural light is my friend for sure! Some of my indoor, dark outside winter pictures were not so hot.

  3. That salad looks SO yummy!

    I looked up the shells recipe. What is the difference between cooking cream and say cream cheese or just cream?

    • Elizabeth

      That salad was seriously yummy.

      I’m not totally sure what the difference is between all of those. I thought the cooking cream would be kind of in-between cream cheese and cream, but it was closer to the thickness of cream cheese. I was thinking about trying a cream cheese and cream or sour cream blend next time or even ricotta or cottage cheese. I’m guessing that would still be good.

  4. i never thought to add a bit of powdered milk to my homemade yogurt- thanks for the tip.

    • Elizabeth

      You are very welcome, Tami! I had heard that tip somewhere along the way, but it wasn’t until a real-life friend (Hi Michelle!) told me she was doing it, that I gave it a try. I mix it in while I am heating the milk. It works great. I would say the yogurt is the same thickness as when I used to use all whole milk.
